The Sampler Girl
Crescent Colors on 28ct Light Mocha
At Home with Jane Austen was my New Year’s Day start this year. I finished restitching the last of that little berry vine at the top last night. You may remember that the vine had to be ripped out and moved two stitches to the left. I could have had this finished on the 1st, but since I had to rip out…it was last night’s finish. I loved every stitch of this piece. It was fun and colorful, the Crescent Colors threads were fabulous. And the bonus is that the fabric that I used for this was the incorrect fabric that was sent to me for my Red Thread, which worked perfectly for this design. I also have enough left that I should be able to stitch the companion piece too. I wish that I had been better able to capture the beautiful brightness of the threads, but when you’re taking photos while it’s still dark outside, you do what you can!
Usually, when I stitch a piece that calls for an initial I use “L”. But, after seeing Paulette’s “P”, I decided that this one deserved an “M”. I’m so happy with it. The quote is from Emma, one of my favorite movies (no, I haven’t read the book, I’m a total slacker).
So, next up is stitching on the Mermaids, since I was so close to a finish I didn’t pick them up on Sunday for my SAL. I figure I’ll spend the next couple of nights on them. Then, I’ll be picking up a new start for Valentine’s Day.
And thanks to Siobhan for this lovely award! I am so happy that Siobhan is blogging now…it makes it easier for me to stalk her. lol! So, I am supposed to list five addictions…
1. List making (I think we all know this)
2. Creating/Crafting – stitching, quilting, you name it
3. Gossip Girl – I see a marathon in my future, along with stitching Tesori (you know what that means!!)
4. Traveling – I love going to new places
5. Mexican food – I could eat it every day
So, now to give this award to some other fabulous blogs…
I have more fun things to show you next time…but I just had to share my latest finish. Guild meeting tonight, and we’ll be discussing Adam & Eve samplers, which I am really looking forward to.
I am grateful for getting back into the game.
